I hand selected the rough stone and drilled it to make this focal bead. Dimensions in the title in mm's, with a 4mm front drill hole. A magical freeform shape with a natural finish. A beautiful and unusual stone that makes a great worry stone or meditation stone. These are found in rivers and lakes in one region of Quebec and they are called Fairy stones or Goddess stones. They are a form of concretion. The heiroglyphic like scribbles that are often visible on one side are the fossil imprints on the root system of the ancient plants that formed the basis for their creation. Supposedly they were considered good luck charms by the Native American tribes of the region and people ascribe metaphysical attributes such as being good for meditation, connection to the Earth, are positive, and calming. Here is info from wikipedia on these formations, "These so-called fairy stones consist of single or multiple discs, usually 6–10 cm in diameter and often with concentric grooves on their surfaces. They form in Quaternary clay as calcium carbonate migrates to some small fossil or pebble. Fairy stones are particularly common in the Harricana River valley in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue administrative region of Quebec, and in Östergötland county, Sweden." CHAIN NOT INCLUDED.
